Assuring the court that the police won't arrest Ravi Prakash for the next 15 days, Telangana public prosecutor C Pratap Reddy said that the former TV 9 CEO has to appear before the police come forward with his explanations regarding the alleged forgery.

The argument of the petitioner was that the police should wait for NCLT decision on the grounds that it is the internal matter of the company. However, the Judge dismissed the pleas asking the petitioner to respond to police notices first.
